As a boomer, growing up in the post war Aerospace explosion, my world was filled with technology and amazing stories of flight. My Dad was one of the original Rocket Engineers, creating the building blocks that would take us into space. I remember driving past airfields as a very young boy, filled with colorful names like Mustang, Lightning, Black Widow and the big three tailed "Connie's". I have a genuine interest in fantasy, science fiction and the sheer joy of imaging what might be. I have been blessed with knowing and enjoying an incredible number of creative people, many of them in my own family. It is my sincere wish to inspire, excite and entertain young minds with a world of possibilities and impossibilities so that we can watch them grow and blossom to take us to better places. The Adam the Little Airplane illustrated series of stories can be a first step. I have also decided to share my passion for short stories, a format that I have always enjoyed. The Hiding Place, PINN and Peoples of Earth are the first, diverse group of stories, but there will be more, including the Tales of the Labyrinth Nebula series.

Blankets is the story of a young man coming of age and finding the confidence to express his creative voice.

This graphic novel has had so much hype and I can see, it reads very true to life in a small town and a religious family. Thompson clearly had a story to tell and the passion and intensity of the relationship in this book is something I feel like I saw in other teens relationships in the church when...

I wrote quite a lengthy review which delved into the many reasons I didn't feel Habibi was designed to be offensive. I illustrated the sensitivity Thompson showed the subject and the fantastic nature of the story. I talked about authorial intent and explored each of the complaints raised against Hab...
